Duran Duran

Duran Duran

You’ve got their cd, you’ve listened to them on the radio and heck you probably have a couple mixed tapes with them on it stuffed in the back of your cupboard, but now you can see them live! Duran Duran rocked us through the 80’s and early 90’s and now the original band members, Nick Rhodes, Simon Le Bon, John Taylor and Roger Taylor will be in South Africa from 7-12 December 2010.

Not only will this be a treat but South African guitarist and singer-songwriter Arno Carstens will be on stage as a special guest artist …

Duran Duran had over 14 singles make it to the top ten of the UK Single’s Chart and most definitely was one of the biggest bands in the 1980’s. I’m sure you remember some of these hits “Lay Lady Lay”, “The Wild Boys” and one of my favourites “Ordinary World”. Won’t it take you back to a different place and time to hear these songs sung live by the legends themselves?

With five shows planned in three cities you have no excuse not to be there!

Duran DuranWhen & Where:
The performances kick off in Durban at the ICC on 7 December, the band then heads into Johannesburg for two performances on 8 and 9 December at the Big Top at Carnival City. The tour finishes up in Cape Town at the Grand Arena at GrandWest on 11 and 12 December.

This isn’t the first time that the band has played in South Africa, their first performance was 17 years ago in 1993 and they were one of the first international bands to perform in the country after the end of Apartheid.

Their music spans three decades and is a unique blend of pop, art and fashion with a debut album in 1981, entitled “Planet Earth” spending an impressive 118 weeks (that is over two years) on the charts. Their music is exciting and catchy and somewhere you have a Duran Duran classic beating in your heart.

Come and watch this 80’s phenomenal band that has certainly been a part of your life this December – be a part of the Wild Boys and rock your socks off!
